Thankyou. Yes when we came across him although we didnt know who he was, we knew it was a special sighting :) I also have a couple of minutes of video footage of him throwing sand over himself and generaly looking impressive, but its about 18mb and I think the dial-up'ers would lynch me ;)

Hi!
I will be in the Kruger next week and I wanted to know if anyone had seen Mashagadzi recently in the Shingwedzi area?

Richard was he alone? I saw one similar but he had an askari with him also at Letabe - fed just in front of the fence where that ramp down is. Will check the photos when I get home.

I think the New Tuskers project is a good innovation and the new exhibition of these giants at the Letaba Elephant museum is very interesting!
It adds new incentive to elephant sightings…

Great pic Arno, but what strange looking tusks. :roll:
That area is producing some nice big tuskers lately, as Baz saw Duke recently a bit further up at the hide and we saw some nice specimens there as well in June. :D

I thought for a moment that it might be MaMerle ...

THE ONLY FEMALE TUSKER
MaMerle
This beautiful elephant cow is thought
to be the biggest female tusker in
Kruger. She was first seen and
photographed near the Sabie River
high-water bridge in August 2004.
She appears to have twins of about
3-4 years old.
She is named after another matriarch
of Kruger, Merle Whyte, who also has
an extended family living in Kruger and the associated
private nature reserves.

This is a picture of a tusker we took in December 2002 around Shingwedzi. It was taken with a very basic camera. I then took a still of the printed snap, so forgive the quality:

Could be Shamariri

But I cannot tell for sure ;-)

*EDIT* Shamariri's area might be a bit too north as well...... But also remember that these guys travel MILES, and do wonder around. Duke (Who lives between P/kop and Croc) has been seen as high as Olifants..... Not often, but it has happened.
